You would have to feel around inside of tub for sharp areas on the tub. If and when you find these areas you will need to make a repair some how. Also check your agitator, it may have sharp edges, or may be cracked. Good Luck Friend.
your washer has a drain catch, a small plastic cylinder with holes in it, that catches things left in you clothes. It may be restricted. You may have to clean your drain catch. It is located inside the hose that comes off the bottom of your outer tub, at the bottom, and goes to the drain pump. The easiest way to do this is to pull unit out enough to where you can tilt it back to rest against the wall. At the bottom of the washer there will be an oval shaped hole. You can access the hose with the drain catch inside of it. Remove the clamp at the tub with a phillips screwdriver or a 9/32 or 7mm socket. Before you do this you may want to remove any water still inside tube with a shop vac attatched to the washer drain line. If not alot of water will come out on the floor, or just get some towels, it will be messy. Once you have removed the clamp, remove hose enough to where you can pull out plastic cylinder inside hose. Make sure when you reinstall hose, that the hose is pushed up all the way against the tub, all the way around, or it will leak. Good luck!
the drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged. To
check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find
access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH
LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out,
catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops,
completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter,
the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any
sounds like you might have a sharp object stuck in the tub and its only coming out every so often i would recomend taking the agitator out and looking throughly in the tub....rub your hand around the tub spin the tub a few times by hand and check several times with your hand.happend to me one time , ended up a small screw was loged in the tub
Same problem. You need to empty the condensor. Take the bottom panel off the front of the unit. Place a LARGE towel under the dryer to catch all the water that is going to spill out. Move the 2 red tabs to the right & SLOWLY open the panel. Allow the excess water to drain into the towel, then fully open the panel. Have a bucket handy to catch the water as you remove the condensor. Slide the condensor out & drop the back end into the bucket to catch as much water as possible. Then take the condensor to the laundry tub & rinse it out thoroughly. Re-assemble. Next time you switch the dryer on, just check that you get a short burst of water from the drain hose. You will probably have to do this every 5-10 loads.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Take out the clothes immediately after
the washer stops spinning. Also clean the
tub with a rust remover. This
issue occurs due to bad drum bearing and it may be grease rather than rust. Although
the tub is metal with porcelain coating and it wears around
the edge of the holes first, leaving metal without porcelain. On spinning
the centrifugal force pushes the clothes against the basket and some
water sneaks into the holes. Due to this you may see the rust on clothes. If
still the issue persists, then the tub is required to be replaced to resolve
the issue. Please do rate the
solution and revert for further
check to see if theres anything in the tub that feels sharp. Make sure theres nothing stuck in the small holes. Also, check out the rubber boot. DOes it look worn? what clothes are getting holes? is it all of them? Colors only? Whites only? Do a maual check on the inside of it with a flashlight to make sure no sharp objest are stuck aor what not?
I was waiting with someone with more experience to post back on your issue. I haven't experienced this issue it but I would not rule out a transmission seal failure causing your oily grey substance in the wash tub.If you want to investigate further you can get the Service Manual from here http://www.fixya.com/support/r1655507-found_service_manual_neptune_top_load take a look at page 38 and on and see if you feel OK with a tear down to the transmission.
Be carefull not to overload and inspect around door and heat entrance area for catch points or sharp areas.
Its usually Washers that tear clothes inspect closly to determin cut or tear. if tear try smaller loads with only similar materials
The washer could be developing a transmission problem. As the washer agitates, the plastic tub is suppose to remain still. If the transmission is starting to slip, it will also try to spin during the agitate cycle, thus making the clothes become tangled under the agitator.
